My first post here on RP is inspired by one female NCO. As i walked into the retention office, I noticed a female in civilian work out clothes in the office to my right. First thought after realizing she was in a loose fitting tank top, wow shouldn't you be in uniform by now? Then, as I wait to speak with my retention NCO, she comes out of her office wearing said tank top and extremely short shorts. The kind those cross fit folks wear. She also stated she had been in the office since 08, it is now 1000. Many people have come in and out of the retention office with her in clear view and to me it's inappropriate. The work environment is a professional atmosphere and if you're going to show up in a tank top and short elastic type shorts, shut your office door until you're in more appropriate attire.

Do you feel this is an obvious distraction in the work place? How does this effect your view on wearing civilian clothes in the work place and would this effect your view of said female NCO?

I'm not sure I understand the question. Would you have any pictures to demonstrate the issue? :)

Not sure if this deserves a thumbs up or a thumbs down, but you definitely got a chuckle out of me.

Not for any prurient or lascivious reasons of course, purely to completely and objectively assess the issue of course.

Totally inappropriate especially for an NCO regardless of the sex.

What’s inappropriate is ridiculous cattiness and whining on social media about it for self validation.

If makes you feel uncomfortable you should say something to her. And yes it probably is inappropriate.

Females with insecurities based on tying their personal self worth to how they look compared to other because of their lack of self esteem and getting everyone else to gang up on another female to stop something they don’t “like”doesn’t necessarily mean it’s “inappropriate”
